Making a lifestyle change, not just for New Year!
Date: January 4, 2012
So let’s face it “New year New you” just doesn’t cut it with me let’s stop making all these rules that are unrealistic and last about 12 days… We should approach our health like a lifestyle change slowing it down a bit thinking about the year ahead not just the day ahead with no chocolate biscuits!! The rules are so prevalent at this time of year none of this, less of that, this in moderation oh yes and exercise every day! We get so hooked on what we have not to do well here is one for you the governing health officials are saying eat more…. how about that? At this moment in time we only eat 1.6 portions of fish a week in our diet and we are being asked to eat 2!!! I reckon we will listen to this one as they are actually advising us to eat MORE Now eating 2 portions of fish is a lot simpler than you think lets think back to my festive recipes…
The smoked mackerel dauphinnoise were absolutely amazing in December however asking anyone to add 2 full cups of double cream to anything in January I will get myself in trouble. So here is a plan use Mackerel baked with chilli & garlic for extra flavour and leave out the salt & bake it with 2 cups of chicken stock that simple calories quartered scales not groaning!!
Brighten up your winter month with this Caribbean inspired dish of pineapple salsa and red gurnard. Or if a cheeky wee fish supper is what floats your boat on a Friday night?? You can even wrap this up in newspaper, we think it tastes better, its a super healthy Fish Supper Lemon sole goujons & low fat tartare sauce
